A man drove his vehicle into an Alaska shopping mall entrance, and then brandished a machete, at 2 a.m. Monday morning, authorities said.

Rogelio Rogel, who is 44 years old, reportedly threatened the security guards with his weapon and he would not drop it, despite attempted negotiations. That’s when the officers released the police dog on Rogel.

The man then injured the animal with his machete, and it ended up needing staples in its leg before returning to work as a K9.

How did authorities eventually get the man arrested after all the commotion? And what charges does he face right now?

Paul Mampilly is a Wall Street legend.
(Barron’s crowned his hedge fund as the “world’s best” and Kiplinger ranked it in the top 1%.)
But a few years ago, he left Wall Street.
“I just grew tired of helping the rich get richer,” Paul explains. “So I started sharing my No. 1 investment picks with Main Street Americans.”
And his No. 1 stock picks across his various research services have been phenomenal.

In 2017, he recommended Plug Power. It gained 1142% in 3.5 years.
In June 2018, he recommended Tandem Diabetes. It’s currently up 520% and still climbing.  
In December 2019, he recommended Enphase Energy. It gained 638% in 1 year. 
And in March of last year, he recommended Carvana. It’s currently up 877% and still climbing.
But Paul believes his No. 1 stock pick for 2021 could go even higher.

A major US city is watching its water supply dwindle at a record pace, as an extreme drought is wreaking havoc on the entire area. 

As the city’s reservoir continues to lower, officials are worried that water may have to be rationed soon. The issue is not only plaguing a major US city, but the crisis impacts two states as well. 

The water supply in question just hit a record low. Photos of the reservoir show just how drastically low the water is after it dipped to a depth of just over 1071 feet last week, which is the lowest it has been since the reservoir was constructed in the 1930s.

Which reservoir is at risk of running dry? And which major city and two states does it affect?
